Meet Daniel Jimenez, the Executive Chef at Back Bay Bistro. He makes a mean Bananas Foster Nuggets, which I described thusly in my earlier review: "Simply put, I've never had anything involving bananas that impressed me more than this dessert." But in reading his responses to our silly questionnaire, maybe I should've also tried his seafood pasta.

Las Brisas in Laguna Beach.

I love pasta, I know it is not fast food but that is definitely my guilty pleasure
